Squash flowers are excellent breaded and fried, tempura style (although traditional Italian bread crumbs work very well also).

Deb said...

Beautiful. Thanks for the diversion.

Is your camera on acid?

I've never seen flowers that intensely colored IRL.

BJM said...

Must be a Dylan kinda day, your photos started this playing in my mind:

Buckets of rain
Buckets of tears
Got all them buckets comin' out of my ears.
Buckets of moonbeams in my hand,
I got all the love, honey baby,
You can stand.

Squash flowers
Did you?
Do you have to buy them first?

jacksonianlawyer said...

Fantastic colors and clarity. Thanks for sharing.

If you took all the girls I knew when I was single
And brought them all together for one night
I know they'd never match
my sweet imagination
everything looks WORSE in black and white

Saturation
It gives us those nice deep colors
The yellow of squash flowers
Makes you think all the buckets are that blue,
Oh yeah
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So mama don't take my Saturation away

Mama don't take my saturate
Mama don't take my saturate
Mama don't take my saturate away.

I'm loving these pics.

Makes me think of Dino de Laurentis w/ all these lush, oversaturted hues.

Squash flowers, sure, but no smashing pumpkins.

(Dios mio, I cant even get this thank you in the right place, thank God I had the decency of cuting and pasting for my typos sake)

One of the things that became aperent to me while submitting to my cumpulsory situation (substance abuse meetings) was that it turned out I had more numbers related to my 'scape' than I had to friends and family (even including "work friends").

While thinking how this was made possible the idea that Althouse could not count among friends and family is unfortunate. (I cant tell people I come here)
On my own way I have been able to get a great deal of benefit from all of you thanks to Althouse.

I'm graduating on Monday and I believe it would not have been possible w/o all of you.

This is somewhat difficult to convey given the nature of this communication. But please believe me when I tell you I'm really grateful we have found a way to communicate this way. (even if once in a while have with trolls ;)

(for Meade) - Beggar that I am, I am even poor in thanks, but I thank you.

I usually talk to my mother on Saturdays. So I'm a little overwhelmed.

Gorgeous Pictures!!!

Fred4Pres: "Squash flowers are excellent breaded and fried, tempura style"
You're right, they're delicious and I keep the family tradition going. I've never made them with bread crumbs but might give that a try when they're ready to harvest this year.

If anyone wishes to see them the way Fred describes (I blogged it last September)- You can see them here:

If you want the recipe, I blogged that last September as well. :)

I disagree. In every way possible. (this will make no sense if Althouse deletes the comment I'm referring to, which is likely.)

Then again, none of my comments make a helluva lot of sense...

If Althouse were to do a poll I'm positive there would be no doubt as to the right of our unspoken hunch.

The china characters are much worst than trolls ;)

They are from robots!

What are the chances robots are monitoring Rush?

Lem said...

Wait.. (on the chance that a Skip Gates fan is here ;)

I know you think China and Japan are "different".

Can you tell them apart?

Our security is depending on your goofballsiness.

Lem said...

As a Christian I have to vote against the communist Chinese ;)

Sorry, you had to be there.

Buckets of flowers
Buckets of tears
Got all them buckets coming out of my ears

My, that sounds uncomfortable! And, what did you say? Can't hear you, I got these buckets comin' out of my ears.

If you had a lot of tears, you could put them in buckets. If you had a lot of buckets coming out of your ears, [OUCH!] what would you put them in?

Aaand ... What Fred4Pres said way up at the top. Squash flower fritters are fine.

Paleo Pat said...

(think hillbilly, you know. Flars...)

Lem, you getting paid by the comment?

rhhardin said...

Today's simple and realistic hopes of (foreground) Doberman and complex and unrealistic hopes of (background) parents with newly bought playset and video camera.

rhhardin said...

Realistic parents would buy toddlers dirt and worms.

Lem, I looked at your blog. But I took French in high school, not Spanish, and that was over 30 years ago. So I tried, but the result probably wasn't satisfactory.

"Se me ocurre que hay mucha jente que perdida como yo invita la perdision a favor de su ignorancia."

My attempt:

"It occurs to me that a lot of something that is lost like I invite hell to please your ignorance." Dang, I bet even babelfish could beat that. Living in Florida now, as I do, I have got to learn some Spanish.

AllenS said...

Lem, this is America, speak English.

Beth talks to everybody

Hi Lem,

It's the next day; I missed this last night. I hope you're doing well. I wish I could read your blog more fluently, but I'm glad you're writing, in all your languages. And I always enjoy talking with you.
